Southekayi Hasi Gojju or Cucumber Raw Curry




Southekayi Hasi Gojju or Raw Cucumber Gojju is a quick curry that goes well with rice as well rotis. I love to have it just as is. As the name suggests, there is no cooking involved.

Ingredients:

2 medium cucumbers
Salt to taste

Grind to paste:
3/4 cup coconut (shredded or powder)
1/4 cup Dalia/Huragadale
2-3 green chillies or to taste
1/8 tsp Hing
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp tamarind paste
1 tsp brown sugar or jaggery
A few sprigs of cilantro (I did not use it here)

Tadka:
1 tsp oil
Mustard seeds
Hing
1-2 dried red chillies crushed (optional)
Curry Leaves

Peel and de-seed the cucumbers. Chop them into small pieces. Add the ground paste & tadka. Mix in salt just before serving.
